Is Hillary's Press Secretary Colluding With Mainstream Media In After-Debate Interview?

October 20, 2016Oct 20, 2016

There has been a lot of evidence shown lately by WikiLeaks releases and James O'Keefe's Project Veritas videos of collusion between Hillary Clinton's campaign and the mainstream media. In a video shot by Jennifer Epstein, who reports on Hillary for Bloomberg, Hillary's traveling press secretary Nick Merrill appears to be quietly communicating with mainstream media reporters as they interview Hillary on her plane following her debate appearance last night.

In the video mashup above, you can see Merrill — standing to Hillary's left — type something on his smartphone and show the message to Andrew Mitchell of NBC News. He then gives a small smirk. Her reaction is not visible.

Next, you see Merrill type something out on his phone at length, then search for a face — or multiple faces — in the press crowd before tapping his phone in an obvious "check your phone" signal. The unidentified aide next to him makes a similar gesture while looking a slightly different direction.

Next Merrill holds his phone in a position so some of the media members can see the screen, but it's unclear if he turns the screen back on.

Finally, after multiple members of the media bombard Hillary at once with questions and she gets a glazed look in her eyes, Merrill can be seen mouthing something to the media right before Hillary gives a very quick answer to the Project Veritas videos and promptly ends the interview.

Here is the original video:

Is there collusion between Hillary's campaign the mainstream media going on here, or is it something innocent? It's hard to say. What do you think?
